Although the orphanages we visited in China operated on a shoe-string budget, each always managed to stress basic education skills. These learning sheets hung on the doors in Laci’s living area at the old orphanage in Hefei, Anhui Province. Learning Chinese is no easy task – I have worked on it with a little success, but not too much! I DO know that the first ten characters on the ‘Characters’ sheet are the numbers 1 through 10! I can also pronounce them reasonably correct and without my Hoosier accent.
